What does the Tibetan book of the dead say happens 14 days after death?

I don't have my copy to hand. I'm asking, because I suspect a dear friend of mine may have died last week.

In general, the process of the Bardo can last between 7 - 49 days with a chance of rebirth or liberation every 7 days.

Depending on your friend's knowledge of the Bardo he could either still be in the Bardo, or in the process of seeing his next life / being reborn / in utero.

    @user3293056 even the wrathful deities are trying to teach and guide your friend. They just teach different lessons. – hellyale Sep 16 '17 at 19:57
